France’s wine production has fallen by more than 10 percent this year compared to 2015, mainly due to bad weather since April, the agriculture ministry said on Thursday. Frost and hail in the spring were the main culprits, and later in the year a lack of rain also contributed to the poor season.
The areas most affected have been Champagne, Bourgogne and the Loire Valley. In Charentes, 3,600 hectares of vines were destroyed by frost and hail, with production down 16 percent. However, the recent hot weather may yet have a further impact on overall wine production in France.
